What is smart connection technology?

Today everybody talks about “Building IoT” or “Smart Buildings,” but what role does connection technology play in times of digitization? In an interview, Ann-Christin Rachuba, Product Management Building Installation, explains what impact connection technology has on smart buildings and what challenges the industry is facing.


Installations in Doorbell and Loudspeaker Systems

For extra-low voltage installations such as the installation of doorbell and loudspeaker systems, we recommend the 243 Series.

Advantages of the installation terminals blocks:

  • Maintenance-free installation
  • Minimal space requirements enable high wiring density
  • Conductor range: 0.6 ... 0.8 mm2 (19 ... 18 AWG)

Wiring in distribution boxes

Space is always in short supply for installation in a distribution box. Therefore we recommend using the 2273 Series PUSH WIRE® connector for junction boxes.

Advantages of the PUSH WIRE® connector for junction boxes:

  • Saves space: 50 % smaller connector saves valuable space in the box
  • Safety: highly transparent housing to visually verify that the conductor has been properly inserted
  • Conductor range: up to 0.5 ... 2.5 mm2 (20 ... 14 AWG)

Wiring Fine-Stranded Conductors in Junction Boxes

For wiring fine-stranded conductors in junction boxes, we recommend the 221 Series installation terminals blocks.

Advantages of the installation terminal block:

  • Saves space: For limited space in the junction box
  • Convenient: easy connection due to lower actuation force
  • Safety: convenient testing conditions even after installation thanks to two test slots

New Installation in Small Distribution Boxes

For installation in small distribution boxes, we recommend using the 2003 or 2005 Series multilevel installation terminal blocks.

Advantages of the multilevel installation terminal blocks:

  • Push-in termination of solid conductors
  • Range of multifunctional jumpers
  • Fastest marking system
  • For the highest current load on the market

Control Cabinet Marking

A streamlined overview with less maintenance: The right marking pays off in the long run. WAGO offers you a multitude of marking solutions for your tasks.

Five Questions for ...

Siegfried Ilk, electrical planner and authorized representative of BWP GmbH, a planning company for industry and building technology from Essen.


“The System is Practically Protected against Mismating.”

The requirements on state-of-the-art building installations have changed. As construction times grow shorter, the electricians have less and less time on the jobsite for installation work. Add to this additional tasks like commissioning fire alarm systems or IT installations, which also fall within the scope of their activity.

Therefore, thinking outside the box can show whether it makes sense to use a state-of-the-art connector system. Elektro Schlötel describes its experience with the WINSTA® Pluggable Connection System.
